Another solid defensive player is going to be taken off the free agent market before he even gets there.

D. Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that the Falcons will re-sign defensive lineman Kroy Biermann within the next 36 hours, calling the move “imminent.”

The two sides are haggling over whether it is a three- or four-year contract. Biermann is coming off perhaps his worst season, but he’s been a very valuable player for Atlanta as a starter, sub, and special teams player. He started 14 games in 2010 when the Falcons went 13-3.

The Falcons have prioritized keeping Biermann over John Abraham presumably because Biermann is younger, cheaper, and more versatile. Atlanta will have to continue looking for pass rush help this offseason.
